Girls’ Generation (SNSD)’s Sunny revealed her actual personality.

During July 20’s broadcast of MBC FM4U’s Sunny’s FM Date, DJ Sunny asked the listeners, “Are you the type to share your sincere or deep thoughts?”

Sunny then said, “Now that I think of it, I don’t think I talk about what’s really inside my head. I guess I assume that the other person will feel my sincerity even if I don’t say it out loud. I also think sincerity is something that can be felt, even if it’s not put into words.”

Sunny said, “Many couples bring this up too. One person would say ‘I love you,’ and the other person says, ‘Yes, thank you,’ so they ask ‘Why don’t you say that you love me too?’ I think I would answer, ‘Do I have to say it out loud for you to know?’”


The SNSD member then added, “I will try to convey my sincere heart to you all today
